It's a camel hair brush. It was used to cast a subtle tone to the drawing area by spreading the gaphite strokes.

Thanks for your kind feedback!

You've done two of Jackie Evancho's three cd covers: Prelude to a Dream and Dream With Me. You must now work on the cover of O Holy Night with a frontal view of Jackie looking to heaven. Can share a photo if you don't have it. Let me know!
